Updated: May 4, 2023

Are you planning any barbecues in for National Barbecue Month in May, or Memorial Day, for sure right? May 16th is the official BBQ Day. We will be planning multiple BBQ parties this month using different grilling equipment and meats from Pork, Beef, Chicken, Fish, Cookies, Pizza, lobster, and many other things.

See this Youtube video we are grilling two rotisserie chickens in a 4 Burner Professional KoKoMo BBQ Grill. Our Chef Marty will show you how to grill using the KoKoMo rotisserie kit and smoker boxes. The infrared back burner will indirectly cook so you don't get any flare ups. set this up a perfect National BBQ Month recipe.

KoKoMo Grills are made using 304 Stainless Steel construction.

In this next youtube video we are doing tacos on our KoKoMo Griddle, KoKoMo Side Burner, and KoKoMo 5 Burner BBQ Grill. Plan these for your taco tuesday.

In this next youtube video we will show you how to use the KoKoMo Power Burner. This Side Burner can be used as a Wok burner, Turkey Fryer, Steamer, Boiler, or Side Burner. This burner has complete control up to 60,000 BTU's

Watch us do our steamer for a Lobster and Crab Boil. This is the best way to entertain and let others BBQ grill with you.

Some prefer BBQ grilling using charcoal, pellets, wood, or gas

I prefer a low and slow approach using charcoal or wood pellets for entertaining and BBQ grilling with friends and family. But using gas grills is fast clean and just gets the job done so that is typically what I use.

I also like to use gas grill because they fit cleaner in a complete Built-in BBQ Outdoor Kitchen or BBQ Island. KoKoMo Built-In bbq Grills are ready to ship so you can have your National BBQ Grill with a KoKoMo Built In BBQ.
